1 x Paddle Shifter Mechanism

The Paddle Shifter places specially designed ergonomic carbon fibre paddles behind your steering wheel. You can shift gears with a 7mm stroke of the precision engineered paddles.

The carefully made, beautifully detailed Paddle Shifter is composed of machined aluminium alloy and finished with a very hard wearing Alumite treatment.

The carbon fibre paddles are adjustable to match the size of your hand or steering wheel by up to 15 mm on each side.

The adjustment range allows for distances between the outer edges of the paddles of 270mm to 304mm.

The microswitch wiring is beautifully concealed within the shift mechanism.

The paddle shifter mechanism for the 996 includes a wiring harness which plugs into the factory wiring connector - your installer will need to connect this wiring harness to the electrical connector on the quick release - see the installation section at the end of this page for installation info.

1 x Quick Release with 20+ pin wiring connector.

The wiring connector automatically engages and disengages the electrical connections to the paddle shifter when the steering wheel is attached and detached.

The paddle shifter has 4 wires and most horn buttons have two wires, so the wiring connector leaves plenty of wiring pins open to connect steering wheel mounted switches to, like car to pit radio buttons, drink button, pit lane speed limiter button etc, so that these switches are in easy reach of the driver on the steering wheel.

If you need switches to mount on your steering wheel, ask us about our range of motorsport quality switches - we are supplied by the same company that supplies the Porsche Motorsport Department with switches for Porsche Cup racecars.Our switches are waterproof and dustproof.

1 x Short Steering Wheel Boss Kit Hub

The short hub system is designed for use with quick releases.

This short hub system is designed to compensate for the additional length of the steering quick release and prevents setting the steering wheel too close to the driver.

With the short hub system, the user is able to offset the position of the steering wheel away from the driver for optimum driver position.

1 x Airbag Warning Cancellation Harness

The Airbag Warning Cancellation Harness allows the driver to bypass the airbag signal in order to prevent the in-dash airbag warning light flashing or staying on once an aftermarket wheel is installed.

Please also see the additional wiring info in the "Installation Info" section at the bottom of this page. This bundle is designed only for installation by a professional qualified auto electrical engineer / auto electrician.

Steering Wheel Compatability

The paddle shifter and quick release are designed to be used with aftermarket steering wheels.

It cannot be used with the factory Porsche airbag steering wheel.

At the steering wheel end, the Quick Release ships pre-machined with bolt holes in standard 6 bolt Momo bolt pattern steering (PCD 70mm).

If you require an aftermarket steering wheel, we can supply a wide range of aftermarket steering wheels.

Installation Info

The Paddle Shifter mechanism in this bundle ships with a plug and play wiring harness for the 996 which plugs straight into the factory wiring connector behind the steering wheel.

Since the quick release has a wiring connector which automatically connects and disconnects the paddle shifter wiring when the steering wheel is attached and detached, the plug and play wiring harness needs to be connected to the pins on each side of the connector in the quick release.

There are 4 wires for the paddle shifter, so wiring is fairly simple with each wire simply connected to each corresponding pin on the steering wheel side and the steering column side of the quick release. Most installers solder the wiring for the paddle shifter to the pins on the electrical connector on the quick release. Installation should only be carried out by a qualified auto electrical engineer / auto electrician.
